Goodbye Vsphere crappy flash hello everything in HTML5.
Just checked Dell's website for out VM hosts and no 6.7 U2 iso yet. Waiting eagerly for that one . Bye bye flash!
Only announced, GA TBD
I'm planning on moving the company I work for to 6.7 U1, any reason to wait for U2? I moved us to 6.5 U1 last year, flash is terrible...
According to the last VMworld (2018) one of the BIG points about 6.7 U2 is a 100% functional HTML 5 interface. Meaning you don't have to access the flash interface to do ANYTHING. I don't know about you but I love how that sounds.
how do i upgrade? im running 6.7.0 build 8169922
The HTML5 version has been working well for me on our vBlocks.
Sweet I will look into U2. I thought I read somewhere it was 100% in U1, but maybe I was dreaming when I read that haha.
They could have done it early. I'm not sure.
For your Hypervizor it's as easy as pushing an new image.
For your vsphere you may be able to do an upgrade install. (or just make a new one.)
How you do that is dependent on the type you have but there are instructions with your download when you pull it down. So I guess... Follow instructions?
That build number is the GA version of ESXi 6.7. If you're using vCenter, upgrade it first using VAMI for the appliance or the windows installer if you're running it in Windows. Then use update manager to patch your host(s). If you're running a standalone host, easiest way is get the latest iso and boot from it to do the upgrade.
But you can't do any of this yet for 6.7u2 because it was only announced, not shipped.
The company I work for. We host these for customers. And our environment is also in it. This would be amazing to say bye to flash.
Even easier is to upgrade from the command line with esxcli:
esxcli software sources profile list --depot=https://hostupdate.vmware.com/software/VUM/PRODUCTION/main/vmw-depot-index.xml
esxcli software profile update -p ESXi-6.7.0-<latest dated image>-standard -d https://hostupdate.vmware.com/software/VUM/PRODUCTION/main/vmw-depot-index.xml
And you should be able to do update 2 now as well if you want to do it this way. I still prefer booting from the iso and running through prompts but it does take more time.
esxcli software profile update -p ESXi-6.7.0-20190402001-standard -d https://hostupdate.vmware.com/software/VUM/PRODUCTION/main/vmw-depot-index.xml
Just updated the VCSA, HTML5 version still won't allow me to set over 10GB of virtual flash (where flash version does).
So, no change for me, still have to use flash version from time to time
What the heck. That is disappointing. Last VMWORLD they promised 100% functionality in the HTML5 interface. If I get to go this year I will be on the insider panels and will definitely bring that up. That's bullshit.
Still cant manage switches or routers with NSX manager.
great, we're upgrading out environment over the next couple weeks. All new Cisco UCS blades going in first. I was looking forward to 6.7u2.
I'm still going to go to it, but waiting on Dell to get their 6.7u2 custom ISO in the wild first.
